Guy at a local course gave me a champion Mamba with one of the proto stamps on it.

Ooooh, nice thread resurrection!

I once found and returned a star-stamped Rhyno to Todd Branch. It wasn't like he was gone from the course, though. I think he was onto the next hole and forgot he left it on the ground or something like that. Circa 1999 or so at Cold Brook. Definitely when the Winnie Crew was in its heyday. I always thought his star-stamped Rhyno was so cool and I never saw another one.

I have a friend with a Metalhead Viper from the early '90s. Back when I had a good forehand I tried it out and, to be honest, I don't recall it throwing much differently for me than the X-Clones and new Banshees I was throwing at the time, just shorter. But it looked so cool! Blue with a red stamp if I remember right. (That same friend, who Discs maybe a couple of times a year now, still bags an original Lightning from 1986 for little get-out-of-trouble flop shots. It's the oldest Disc I know of from somebody still in use, maybe with the exception of a Dauntless the owner of Wild Haven still uses and keeps tagging 100-footers with!).

I have some old Rams and Banshees and that's it for stock star stamps. Everything mentioned here are throwers, not collector-bagged Discs. I immediately retired a Banshee I had only used for one round in 1999 because I parked On Top of the World with it on my one glorious visit to DeLaveaga, back when I had that young man forehand. If I tried that shot today I think my arm would come off at the elbow and fly down the mountain with the Disc!

I don't retire Discs for aces either (until the Disc is obsolete), but that day was such a memorable day in my life, I had to do it. Glad I did because it's one of two Banshees I still have left from that era.

The other has two aces on it. One of them stuck to the side of the cage and that used to count back then, so I count it, of course!

Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention I still bag a Disc I bought that day at DeLaveaga. I might've bought it from Marty Hapner. I remember talking with a Marty who I think was him. It's a Soft Magnet with a "Disc Golf Epicenter" stamp. It's SO beaten in. I use it for extreme short anhyzer putts and have nailed countless 50 to 100-footers from around bushes with it. One of these days it will disintegrate into powder, but until then, it gets a slot next to my putting putter.

I don't either, though the only Ace I have had is with a disc my mom now has in her bag, the disc was not for me once I got better.

My Brother has a First Run (with regular stamp) DX Skeeter in his beginner persons bag. This was back when Innova did for a while labeling discs First Run for the Production run of a disc with the regular stamp for the plastic the mold came in during the first production run.
